To all my Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ. Greetings in the Name of the Lord! This is a prophecy that the Lord gave me in the night hours, while praying.
1 AGAIN the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, speak to the people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away his blood shall be upon his own head.
5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”
This is what the Lord is saying to the pastors in this nation, yes and even overseas in other nations:
“I will require it of you when you presume to speak in My Name!” Do not think too much of yourself when you speak, or in the position you hold in ‘your’ church. I will honor even the least among you whom the people have called to be a watchman: even if he is not of me. The people that have chosen you will get what THEY deserve. If you are serving me, it is because THEY are seeking to serve me.
If you ARE NOT serving me, it is because THEY do not want to serve me.
Many times I have told you to tell the people a word from me, but you would not! You were afraid to tell them because you did not think they would hear you. And for good reasons. They would not have heard the word, EVEN if I had set the place where you stood on fire, even as I did with Moses.
They chose you because they didn’t want a deep relationship with me. They wanted someone who would tell them how good they were or what great things they have done for me! What have they done for me? What have You done for me? You build great buildings and sit back and say, “The Lord told us to do this.” When I haven’t spoken.
I have spoken to you in the night hour and you have not heard me. You were not willing to sit up with me and seek my Spirit and my word. You were not willing to learn My ways! Woe to you who call yourselves Shepherds who are not Shepherds but who go about seeking praise from men and not from me! Woe to you hypocrites who say you serve me but instead you seek to use my Word to bring you things that will burn with a terrible fire when I send My Judgment upon the earth to try all that man has done.
Woe unto you when you see all of the beautiful works that you have made with your hands burn. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth on the Great and Terrible Day that I , The Lord God of Hosts visits His people!
If you will serve me, If you will not harden your heart, If you will turn from your own way. Then hear what I have to say to you!
I will open My Word to you in a way that you have never experienced before. I will come to you in the night hours and I will have fellowship with you with My Holy Spirit. You MUST turn from your way and seek My way!
Some of you have been afraid to seek My power. I want you to have My power and to know My ways! I am coming soon! Sooner than you even know! I will come to you as a friend long missed, or I will come to you as a thief It is up to you!
From this day forward, if you will open your hearts to me I will change you and your people! When you hear Me speak to you, you MUST go and tell the people. If they don’t want to hear what I have to say don’t worry about it. Many of you will be thrown out of your churches. I will raise you up another. Not made with the hands of men, but of My Hands!
Do you not yet understand what I said when I spoke to the Pharisees and said, “If you tear down this temple I will raise it up in three days?” Do you not yet understand what I meant when I said, “In My Fathers house there are many mansions,” And again, “I go to prepare a place for you?” Open your ears that you may hear, and your eyes that you may see and your hearts that you may understand,
“If you do not warn the people from Me then They Will Not know when I warn them. If they then die in their iniquity, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF YOU!”
These things the Lord gave me in the night hour when I was just learning to pray and fast.
Pastors, You have a great responsibility upon you. When you were called by your church to serve them, your responsibility was to serve The Lord. I fear for many of you and for your congregations. I don’t want to hear The Lord say to any of you, “get thee away from Me you workers of Iniquity, for I never knew you.”
Please when you read these things, do not read into them anything that I am not saying. Just read them for what they say and ask God, through the Holy Spirit, how they apply to you. I know that if you do this that He will open up His word and His Will to you.
Your servant in Christ,
Brother Richard D. Eutsler
